I'm working on adding a woodstove to a yurt. The chimney will go out a sidewall and then head up. There is not a good way to brace the chimney to the yurt itself.
Here are some options I've read about, but don't know how to judge:
Build a wooden frame to support the chimney. Pairs of 2"x6"s joined in L-shapes as the corner. Attached to a poured concrete footing w/ 2"x6" treated "sill plates". Could be covered with sheathing & siding.
Build a masonry column to support the chimney, like this:
- Put a metal pole in the ground, strap the chimney to it. Not sure what kind of pole, or size. Here are some pictures of this:
Any other suggestions?
